The file still has lots of ASCII spaces in the name:
doc/Appendix A - An Introduction to Preprocessor Metaprogramming.html
This breaks Fedora packaging because we do:
find $docdir ... | xargs install -p -m 644 -t $docpath
and xargs splits on spaces.
I know I can fix it with -print0 and -0, but for the sake of KISS
could it be just appendix.html, or intro.html or something?
